Volunteer at PrideFest

Volunteer at PrideFest in June 2024!

Volunteer at PrideFest

PrideFest is now recruiting volunteers for our 2024 festival!

We strive to create a safe, respectful, and encouraging environment for our volunteers - and don't forget about all the FUN!

Volunteer Sign Up for the 2024 Festival has ended. Thank you for your interest. Please visit us again when the 2025 signup form is active. Thanks! 

Volunteers are needed Tuesday through Sunday, June 4th - June 10th to help across all areas and in a variety of different roles. We need folks for things like set-up and tear-down, ticketing and entry, security, assisting patrons in many areas like the info booth, accessibility, check-in and much more.

Sign-up for as many shifts as you would like, (and honestly feel you can handle.)

*Please know that while we can't guarantee specific volunteer assignments, we'll do our best to place you where you will feel most comfortable. You will definitely be very comfortable in your collectable VOLUNTEER T-SHIRT!  

Volunteers receive an official volunteer t-shirt, complimentary food, snacks & beverages, admission to the festival on the day(s) you volunteer, and other perks and giveaways! You'll also be invited to our annual Volunteer Appreciation event later in the summer!

Join us in making PrideFest 2024 the best yet!

PrideFest Milwaukee is made possible by volunteers like YOU!
Volunteer at PrideFest

simple things to remember:

  • Have questions? Always ask, we’re here to help!
  • While we work hard to be considerate of personal preferences and provide the best match for a work assignment, there are often specific spots we need filled and needs that come up unexpectedly. We appreciate your flexibility and willingness to jump in and assist!
  • Regardless of role, you’ll get some pre-festival training and orientation. While onsite, you’ll have a manager overseeing your specific role who is there to help you have a great experience. You’ll also be supported by our Volunteer Team and can keep in touch with them at volunteer@pridefest.com.
  • Please be confident in your intent to volunteer. There’s nothing worse than waiting for a much needed volunteer to check-in and never hearing from them.
  • We have established policies and procedures, along with a code of conduct. For everyone’s benefit we ask you to please familiarize yourself with and adhere to them.
  • Be respectful and kind to one another. We are all here to support our community and make sure everyone feels welcomed and supported.
  • You do NOT need to be LGBTQ+ to volunteer – just be open, respectful, and committed!
  • There are volunteer opportunities for those under 18 years of age, but you will need to have parental consent in order to participate. Write us at volunteer@pridefest.com for more information.
  • Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the organizations and resources in the community, including your host - Milwaukee Pride, Inc.
  • During the festival, many on the team are running on very little sleep over the weekend. We always look out for each other, but always stress the importance of self-care. Get your rest, stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, and don’t be afraid to ask for a break to keep yourself up and running.
  • The festival is YOUR event, too! Make sure to have all the fun you can, just please take your volunteer commitment seriously first.
  • Don’t forget what a difference you’re making. We couldn’t do this without you!

PrideFest 2024

Volunteer Sign Up Form

When you volunteer with Milwaukee Pride, you will encounter a very robust, engaged, dedicated, often silly, but always passionate production team and board of directors who have worked hard all year to present a world-class Pride event.

Many of you are familiar faces, and have been part of the volunteer family for years – it’s always great to see you! In the course of volunteering, you might realize that you’d like to do even more. Milwaukee Pride is working on enhancing our volunteer program, and would like to find ways to keep you engaged year-round. This could include social gatherings, informational trainings, and smaller events that happen between PrideFests. We can always benefit from helping hands! We look first to our most dedicated volunteers when vacancies happen on our production team. Keep in touch with us at volunteer@pridefest.com if you’d like to get more involved, or ask your area manager or someone on the volunteer team about possible opportunities to be a bigger part of Wisconsin’s largest LGBTQ+ event!
